Our people

Our human resources management focuses on responsible and continuous development of the organization.

Our key objective for the moment is to develop an organization that has all the competencies and personnel for ensuring the statutory and legal requirements set for the construction phase of the nuclear power plant. Resource planning and competence management are critical success factors for Fennovoima. Fennovoima’s Human Resource Manual as well as Organizational Manual are integrated parts of the Fennovoima Management System. Fennovoima has wellbeing management and other processes in place in order to create a good and equal working environment.

During 2016 our competence pool was complemented with new areas of expertise, and many existing competence areas were strengthened with new resources. Development of Fennovoima’s competence model was started and the company core and leadership competences were defined and implemented. Development programs of leadership and management skills for Fennovoima managers were executed and they continue annually.
